CENTRAL BASTROP COUNTY, Texas — Monday's episode of ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition profiled Texas Firefighter Mizzy Zdroj, and the show's crews rebuilding of not only her home, but her department.
Firefighter Zdroj lost her home to a massive wildfire in Texas in 2011, and while the Makeover crew rebuilt her home, they decided they wouldn't stop there.
In addition to her home being destroyed, her station next door was as well, including much of their equipment.
Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus stepped in to donate a new brush truck to the department and made additional donations of $1,000 each to departments in Hinesville, Ga. and Roundup, Mont. Globe Manufacturing, Inc. also spread more goodwill by donating more than $50,000 in turnout gear.

Like all good things, I am sure it will end. However, while it is here, we should give thanks and support the companies that advertise.
God Bless the sponsors and folks that make it happen. I have often thought of the emotionial roller coaster that the cast must ride as they get to know the people that they help. I am sure it is a great feeling, but a not so easy job.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
